    Glad you all like our Submariner, these sweaters, the Paratrooper and the RAF Comforts have been a total revelation, we got what we thought was a full year's supply delivered in November, they are now virtually sold out, next lot are due in a few weeks

    First post of my recent "wearers"
    Un-named Aero sample Work Coat in Battered Seal Horsehide made by Julie (Two Winters Wear) and 1943 Arnoff Shoe AN-J-4 (Light Period Restoration before I got it and essential new collar fitted myself, someone had shaved off all the pile from the collar before I got it!!)
    It's been mine since the 1980s, comes out when the temperature drops enough below zero, so I've been wearing it this week!
    The state of the Horsehide trim shows just how hard a life it's had yet the shearling still feels as strong as it must have felt on the day it was made, astonishing for an un-babied 75 year old jacket. Kens Jackets 002.JPG Kens Jackets 005.JPG

    It's just down the road too, but climbing up the stairs will do me these days!

    Yeah it’s really nice to be able to wear the B-3 and B-2 together again, and even better to have the A-10 gloves to go with them (they’re in the pocket). Yeah Smithy, I realised the ‘tache had gone beyond what I originally envisaged, so I cut it back a bit. Much happier with it now, although it’s a constant process of development and adjustment.

    Whoa!....... That looks very cold.
    I’m thinking B-3 or Irvin weather but the B-10 looks good . I’m guessing you had something heavy on underneath.

    Looks cold enough for your B-3, but that just goes to show the versatility of an A2 jacket.

    Not cold, -3C ( 28F) but very snowy.
    Yes, under the jacket I has sweater.
    The short jacket was chosen because we play with my daughter over the snow on a sled, it is more convenient.
    I usually wear another jackets in our climate in winter season and these jackets are much longer than flight jackets :)
